Authors(2) :-M. Islamuddin Faraz, Utkarsh Jain

Indore is the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh. It had a registered vehicle population of about 0.48 million in 2000 which is increasing at an average annual rate of 8.8 percent. Indore has a population of 3,276,697 with an area of only 3,898 square kilometers (as per the Census-estimated 2011). It is the most densely populated city in the central province. Thus being the most densely populated city it has major parking problems everywhere, especially at CBD areas. In the present study parking behavior and present parking scheme has been studied at Novelty Market Jail Road. The average of the total vehicles parked has been determined by cordon count, patrolling and questionnaire method. An average of seven days of vehicle count has been considered.
